God has always had His messengers. Do you recognize some of them?
Elijah, John the Beloved, Moses, Abraham, the Prophet Isaiah, Teresa of Ávila, Helena and Nicolas Roerich, Mary Baker Eddy, Guy and Edna Ballard, and most recently, Mark L. and Elizabeth Clare Prophet.
God has not left us alone. Through progressive revelation, he continues talking to us. But how do we know what he is saying, if we don’t have the Gift of the Holy Spirit? His messengers tell us of His messages.
What Does a Messenger Do?
Essentially, a messenger is an evangelist, one who has the responsibility to relate a message from God or one of his emissaries. A messenger delivers spiritual law, prophecies, and dispensations of God for a people and an age.
Being a messenger is a spiritual office. Messengers are trained by an ascended master, or masters, and anointed by the Great White Brotherhood. This brotherhood is a spiritual fraternity consisting of Ascended Masters, cosmic beings, angels and archangels, and Elohim who oversee our planet and soul evolution. The ‘white’ in their title refers to the halo of white light often seen around their heads or seen around the bodies in the form of an aura.
The most common method for the deliverance of their messages in this day and age is through a ‘dictation.’ Dictations contain the words of the heavenly host, as well as a transfer of light to those receiving the message for the quickening of their souls and their spiritual initiations.
While receiving these dictations, messengers are fully conscious, yet in an exalted state. The messages occur through the conveyance of the Holy Spirit and not through psychicism or spiritualism where a disembodied spirit takes over the body of a channeler.
The Ascended Masters released profound teachings, messages, and prophecies that present a path and teaching whereby souls can find their way back home to God.
The Messenger Mark L. Prophet
In 1958, the Ascended Master El Morya called Mark to Washington, D.C. to found The Summit Lighthouse and to publish the teachings of the Ascended Masters. On August 8 of that year, El Morya dictated the first of the Pearls of Wisdom to Mark, launching a worldwide movement called The Summit Lighthouse.
In February 1973, Mark delivered his final dictation, given at the Santa Barbara Motherhouse in California. Not long after that, he ascended to reunite with God. Today Mark is known as the Ascended Master Lanello. His name is a combination of names from his two embodiments as the knight Lancelot and the poet Longfellow.
The Messenger Elizabeth Clare Prophet
In 1961, Mark’s twin flame, Elizabeth, joined him to carry on the work of the Great White Brotherhood. Together they continued the mission until Mark’s ascension when Elizabeth continued as the sole messenger and the president of The Summit Lighthouse.
In 1975, the Board of Directors of The Summit Lighthouse founded Church Universal and Triumphant under the direction of the Ascended Master Johannes. The goal was to meet the religious needs of an expanding body of spiritual seekers, to liberate all souls everywhere who seek spiritual freedom and who sense their innate divinity. Under her direction a spiritual university (Summit University) was founded and a publishing house (Summit University Press), with the sole goal of spreading the Teachings of the Ascended Masters.
Elizabeth retired from The Summit Lighthouse in 1999 and ascended in 2009. Known as ‘Guru Ma’ by church members, her videos, and writings, have been published in many languages, and are read by devotees all over the world.
